Clinic-First Training

FlynnWe have adopted the Clinic-First scheduling model for our second and third year residents during their non-inpatient rotations. This allows each resident to have a dedicated week in the ambulatory clinic, followed by a dedicated week on their rotational experience. This reduces travel time and enhances continuity of patient care, both of which have served to increase our residents’ overall satisfaction with their training. Our clinic also has a multidisciplinary team consisting of physicians, nurses, behavioral specialists, pharmacists and a community social worker working in an integrated model of care.
